There's no reason to doubt history.
And if history repeats itself, then the Sulphur Springs Lady Cats will earn another ticket to postseason play in softball.
That's the way head softball coach David Carrillo has it figured anyway.
With seven returning starters back from a 24-13 area playoff team last year, no wonder he's smiling.
"I am just building on the success that was already here," Carrillo said. "Coach McCullough (John McCullough, now SSHS principal) had this program going great. I just want to continue it."
The last preseason soccer game could not have turned out better for Sulphur Springs.
Not only did they get a 1-0 win over a talented Pleasant Grove squad, but they bolstered their confidence heading into district soccer play Monday.
“We played well. We were definitely on the attack the whole night. The girls played hard and never gave up,” SSHS soccer coach Joel Bailey said.
LONE OAK — The hosting Lone Oak Buffaloes might have taken a one-point varsity win from Como-Pickton in round ball action, but the Como-Pickton JV Eagles boasted a 51-34 victory Friday.
The game started slowing with C-P putting up buckets by lead scorer Ryan Carpenter, Joseph Thornhill, Hunter Cooksey, and James Carter tallying 10.
The Buffaloes take advantage of their lead to build on it in the second quarter tacking on twice as many points as the Eagles. Trying to regain, Carpenter sank two back-to-back treys in the fourth. Contributing to the 3-point average was teammate Phillip Cox with a long swish from behind the half circle line. Lone Oak answers back with a 3-pointer to cinch the 46-45 win.
